The first volume of this work comprised an outline history of the Raptorial Birds, together with that of the Dentirostral tribe of the Insessorial Order. In the present we lay before our readers the remainder of the Insessorial Order, comprising the several Tribes, Fissirostres, Scansores, Tenuirostres, and Conirostres. The whole work will be completed by the publication of the third volume, which will comprehend the Orders Rasores, Grallatores, and Natatores: orders in which are placed several domestic and wild families well known and valued in this country. We, therefore, confidently expect that it will possess, for the majority of our readers, greater interest than the portions already published.
